Yesterday saw Crowd extinguish a small patch that doesn’t really do much other than change the respawn resource and prevent some graphics tuning settings from being changed in certain situations. That alone wouldn’t be really believable except for the feature the patch notes don’t detail: a sneaky change to the game’s API that could prevent bots from pulling the number of players.

This API change specifically affects the Discord bot called Malekai, which provides the population count for each campaign server as well as the full player count in the game. As of yesterday’s patch, the API now shows population capacity, just a small percentage.

As one would expect, this kicked off a lot New discussion on whether MMOs should share their player count compared to the importance of player count in RvR-style MMOs.
